Eusébio was born in Inhambane, is 35 years old, lives with his wife and 2 children (who are minors) and is not responsible for anyone else.

He has been a farmer for quite some time and farms a 5 hectare piece of land. With this loan he plans to increase the volume of his crops by buying raw materials for farming. This is his 3rd loan with Hluvuku and the previous ones were for the same purpose.

In future he plans to finish building his house and start a business rearing chickens for selling on. His biggest challenge is not having a vehicle to transport his produce.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of a partnership between Hluvuku and iDE to bring key technical assistance to farmers in the Maputo district of Mozambique.

Under this program, farmers are offered agricultural loans alongside trainings in horticulture production, water management, irrigation, and more. In addition to this, borrowers are trained in post-harvest handling and-- through iDE’s network of Farm Business Advisers -- they are also offered access to on-the-ground support, as well as linkages to high quality inputs. The maximum loans repayment period is 18 months, with a maximum amount of $3,000.

Agriculture loans are often underfunded by traditional institutions due to the higher risk that they present when compared to smaller business loans.  By funding this loan you are playing an important role in helping Mozambican farmers to access critical support and capital that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
